FX Sets Date for Charlie Sheen's Anger Management and Other Summer Comedy Fare

FX has chosen Thursday, June 28 as the launching pad for a newly robust night of comedy, teed up by the series premiere of Charlie Sheen‘s Anger Management.

Loosely based on the 2003 Jack Nicholson/Adam Sandler movie, Sheen’s Anger will debut that Thursday at 9/8c with back-to-back episodes. It will be followed at 10 pm by the Season 2 premiere of Wilfred (featuring guest star Robin Williams). Season 3 of Louis C.K.’s Louie will unspool at 10:30 pm.

  • FX seems to be the only network with any clue. That’s an amazing thursday night line up.

  • Any line up with Louis CK’s show is of a higher caliber thanks to the quality of his show. Wilfred also was great last year, I can’t believe that I am interested to see all of these shows, especially considering two of them star Charlie Sheen and Russell Brand. I hope Sheen does something different with this character, I think this is his chance to prove the guy in Platoon and Wall Street hasn’t been burned away. He was apparently a professional and well liked actor on Spin City and I hope he gets it together and makes something great. FX is one of my favourite channels and the quality of the shows they make is incredible. I hope the streak continues…

  • When I read that Sheen was playing a baseball player in AM, I was hoping he’d be reprising the role of Wild Thing.

  • Charlie used to look like a leading man. Now, he looks like a villain.

    • so what ? ‘villain’ are more interesting anyway..and what about ‘anti-hero’ ? He is perfect for it and it is the new ‘it’ type of leading man. The ‘goodie clean dudley do right’ hero interest nobody, it is boring, i chose Sheen eccentric ways over that any day even more on(-screen when it is supposed to entertain us.

  • Only 5 comments? I guess this shows the lack of interest in Charlie Sheen. However, I am looking forward to Louie C.K. Watched Wilfred last year, but am still not sure about it as after every episode I was slightly disturbed.

    • In this case it also shows the lack of interest in Louie C.K. isn’t it ?

  • I’m so excited for the new season of Wilfred! It’s been a long wait after that season ending show and I’ve been dying to know what happens. Good luck to those amazing writers.
